Swipe + Password...are you kidding me?
I got the FR22 update pushed to my phone. Based on security policy, it forced me to setup either a PIN or Pasword (I chose PIN).
So now, to use my phone, I have to swipe, then enter a PIN? This is a bit nuts...should be one or the other.
How do I get rid of the swipe to just use the PIN?

Yup, this was one of this first things to greet me when I setup my Droid after leaving BB. It was almost back to BB for me because it was THAT annoying.
Like someone mentioned before there is "no app for that" to fix in Froyo. The work around was given to me by someone on Crackberry.com, which was to use an app called Touchdown Exchange from the market. Once installed it will handle all your exchange mail functions. The brilliance of the app is that it only asks for the password to be entered upon first run of the app after a reboot .. After that no password required after unlocking.
Bad thing is after 30 days you have to buy the full version (unlock key) for $19.99. The only thing different between paid and free is that in the free version you cant edit your signature. Good thing is you get a VASTLY better exchange email program that to me beats what I had on the Blackberry Enterprise Service I previously used.
To me it was a small price to pay to enjoy all Android offers without the annoyance of the exchange password...

Trust me when I say that Swiping to unlock then typing in a 4 digit PIN then hitting enter it a royal pain in the arse.... Especially when the device locks every time the screen blacks out ...
